Like I posted before, the set up was meant to be able to guide the cultivators to compensate for slight variations in the row. You were supposed to hold the tractor straight with the handle and move the cultivator with the twist.

Those tires look decent to me.  You have to remember they only need a couple of pounds of pressure and they only go a walking speed. 

VERY nice machine!!!  :thumbs:

Well now that is good news Gwest,them parts will fit my hoe-trac and will give me something else to look for, I wonderIf the 3/4hp.is a hoodless hoe-trac or hoe-trac to be?I can't believe you found this ad.it seems like this tractor should have been in the line up I seen in an ad earlier in this post,

GL you are correct, the tractor in background is a Jim dandy,this is how I got it missing hood and engine, my neighbor used it in his garden for years broke the crankshaft took it apart figured it junk and through the hood and engine parts away:(#$@%&.I do know where some parts might be had,I have another walk behind that I know nothing about and will include it in the pic's, it is configured as a tiller with some kind of mount on the front for implements, it is so deep in that I had to dig a half hour to get the pic's I got lol I'm sure someone here will know what it is

I hope the pics came through, I have hid the post on accident and can't seem to get it back, the motor pics are for cliff, I have a soft spot for lauson engines, the one on the floor is one I used to rev the the hell out of when I was 10 on grandads farm (and a wm brigs, still have it to) the one on the snowmobile engine is a 1/2hp,if you look at the gastank it has a small torch tip for burning gas vapor (open flame on a gastank,wow) it is military from early 40s
